    Cookies?

    Most of the posts here are about which high protein or energy gels you should eat, so I thought I'd change it up a bit and ask which cookies people like. You can't always stick to your tight training diet, so what's your favorite kind of cookie? Any other foods or drinks that you just can't go without that aren't quite by the book?

    As for me, I love these cinnamon cookies made by LU called "Le Bastogne." I shove some in my jersey sometimes. I also love rehydrating with coca-cola. I saw some pro on cycling.tv doing it, so it can't be that bad.

    MMmm...droooool.....coooookies. I love cookies more than any other food. Cookies are most definitely the bane of my training diet. Potato Chips, soft driks, candy, crackers, booze and ice cream I can do without but never cookies. And cookies must NEVER be eaten without several glasses of cold milk (low fat of course) My favourites are as follows. (I live in South Korea so it's slim pickins these days)

    - Chewy Chocolate Chunk (Pepperidge Farms??)
    - Oreo Chocolate
    - Chips Ahoy
    - My Grandmothers Oatmeal Raisin
    - Warm chewy homemade peanut butter cookies
    and my favourite
    - chocolate chip cookie dough (not a cookie but the essence of all things cookie like)

    Now I can't resist. I guess it's off to the shop for a fix.

    Fig Newtons -- best of both worlds.

    Flat Coca Cola, right? Wasn't there a commercial in the late 70's or early 80's showing Keanu Reeves rehydrating with a Coke after a bike race? Personally, I like to rehydrate with either beer or a gin-and-tonic

    Did you spell rehydrate right?

    I love Oreos. My favorite non-commercial cookie is one my wife makes. It's butter, sugar, flour, almond extract. No eggs, the leavening is all done by creaming the butter and sugar.

    My GF just brought me some cookies last night. A batch with semi-sweet chocolate chips, some with M&Ms, some with peanut-butter chips. Unfortunately.... there's none left to take on today's ride... if there is a ride.. damn rain!

    Monster cookies. Greatest ever.
    Basic rundown. Peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips, M&M's, brown sugar, vanilla and the rest of the basic cookie ingredients. Pain in the butt to make but holy cow, I can eat a dozen plus at one time. Actually make great recovery food after a good mtn bike ride.

    Wait, where did you learn of monster cookies? There's somebody I know who makes a cookie by the same name, with a remarkably similar recipe. Everything you mentioned except M&M's. They're great, I often eat them before, during, and after . . . mountain bike rides. You're freaking me out!

    If you have a Costco membership, try some Aussie Bites--- they are tasty and pretty healthy too, made with rolled oats, honey, dried apricots, shredded coconut, etc. They are great before a ride/run, and that's coming from a guy who usually hates cakes/cookies/pastries.
    Too much talk, not enough pedal.

    Pumpkin chocolate chip.
    Skeptical track racers transform into gooey chocolate-pawed kids with one bite.

    Dude, cookies are my _kryptonite_! One cookie just tastes like... more. I actually have to avoid them.

    I've moved to low-cal energy bars with a lot of flavor, like the GoLean ones. Not a cookie, but darn tasty! :-)

    Modesty exists in direct proportion to the amount of physical exhaustion.

    Ride your bike. It makes the world better, and it makes you happy.

    I only eat cookies made in Belgium or based on recipes form the region. I'm hoping some of their national talent rubs off on me.
